16th Annual Downtown Gadsden Chili Cook Off

Saturday, Feb. 3rd is the date for the 16th annual Downtown Gadsden Chili Cook Off. Local teams will put their best recipes to the test, hoping to be crowned 2024 winners! Teams can begin cooking at 7am. They will be located on Broad Street between 4th and 6th Streets.

The public is invited to purchase taste tickets to sample the chili entries. Tickets will be available onsite for $ 1 each or six for $ 5. Chili will br ready for sampling at noon and everyone is encouraged to arrive early because the chili runs out fast!

Judges will be sampling each participating chili to select 1st, 2nd and 3rd place cash-prize winners. The public can cast their votes for the crowd favorite.

Proceeds from the event will be used to support ongoing downtown projects.
